Did you know that WordPress powers 22.5% of the web? That’s because it’s both simple and flexible, making it appealing to both users and developers alike. Over the years, it has transformed into an extremely versatile content management system (CMS). Let’s take a look at why WordPress is such a great solution.
WordPress is easy to use
WordPress is intuitive and user-friendly, making it easy to add/edit your own content, even if you have little or no web design experience. Although you may have to hire a web designer initially to get your site up and running (and make any format and layout changes you want), you’ll be able to make any future changes to your site quickly and easily.
WordPress is extendable
WordPress is super flexible and functionality can be easily added through plugins. Whether you need to add forms, calendars, or full e-commerce to your site, there is a plugin for that! The look of your site can drastically be changed through themes, and we specialize in designing and developing themes from the Genesis Framework that are made just for you.
WordPress is good for search engine optimization
Search engines like WordPress. The code that powers WordPress is clean and organized, making it easy for search engines to read a WordPress site’s content. WordPress also allows users to tag and categorize every post or page with specific keywords, which is very useful for SEO and your website. If you want to take SEO a step further, Yoast SEO is a great plugin with a lot of additional tools for managing your site’s SEO.
WordPress offers good site management tools
WordPress is browser-based, meaning you can log in and manage your site from any computer connected to the internet. It also allows for multiple users. The site administrator can easily set up user accounts with different capabilities for each user. Furthermore, WordPress makes it easy for the site manager to install software updates with one-click updates straight from the WordPress dashboard.
WordPress is free!
WordPress is open source and free to download, install, modify, extend, and do whatever you want with. To run WordPress, all you need is a domain and hosting. We recommend SiteGround hosting. Due to it’s open source nature, WordPress has a great community backing it. It is maintained by a large team of volunteers that are committed to growing and improving WordPress. By using WordPress, you become part of this awesome community, with access to support and other free software. Once you have some experience, you can even contribute back to the community.
